I remember the day Chris from Big Muddy Crossfit called me to see if I was available to photograph some athletes at the gym. Shortly after I showed up, he informed me that Taylor would be proposing to Sonni, I spent the rest of the hour anticipating the moment....It was perfect!

Naturally, Taylor and the boys spent their morning with a group workout at Big Muddy.

Sonni and I spent an afternoon walking the streets of downtown Bismarck, scouting out locations for her urban themed wedding day. The art wall was definetly a favorite!

As we were driving to the church I couldn't resist stopping by the Governors Mansion, the leaves and lighting were beautiful!

After the ceremony, we made a party bus detour for pictures....and beers.

Jamie and Logan had a small intimate wedding on a beautiful Friday afternoon in October. The same day as our grandma's birthday. Jamie also happens to be my sister. I can still remember Logan coming to my parents home on the 4th of July with the news of their engagement as we celebrated under fireworks along the Marina Bay shores.  I was super excited for Logan & Jamie when they began the wedding process. Jamie came over and I started helping with the planning, since I have 50 some weddings under my belt, I have became quite the planner :) Jamie casually asked me to be a bridesmaid and I casually said no. We have one of those honest to God relationships. We tell each other the brutal truth, no feelings spared. Those who know me know, I am not a bridesmaid, I am a photographer. So with that we checked photographer off her list and moved on with the other tasks.

Logan requested a stop at his work, I am glad he did! These are some of my favorite pictures!

If you follow me on social media, this little guy is probably a familiar face. My nephew Corbin is an adorable monster. He made their wedding so much more enjoyable with his cute smile, wild personality, and contagious laugh.

I guess Bristol isn't the only one Corbin turns the cheek to :)

This is the most influential person in my life. She is my grandma Bonnie. The most selfless person I have ever met with a heart of gold. She unfortunately suffers from Alzheimer. Before things got blurry for her, one of the last known memories was my sister telling her that she was pregnant with Corbin. Corbin has always loved sitting with her and she would frequently ask for him and cuddle him. I will forever cherish this picture. She was so happy that day.

Alyssa & Garrett said "I do" on a gorgeous August afternoon in Bismarck. It was one of those perfect days, a few clouds, not too hot, and no wind! This wedding will forever have a place in my heart. 4 days prior, our little girl Bristol made a 3 week early arrival! What was suppose to be my last wedding before baby ended up being my first wedding after baby! Yes, I photographed a wedding 4 short days after giving birth and 1 day after leaving the hospital. Alyssa was so amazing the entire time. I remember this fear coming over me when the doctors said I needed to be induced. There was actually a point when I asked if we could do it the following week because I needed to photograph this wedding. On Monday afternoon I told Alyssa what was going on, I anticipated a bridezilla moment but instead received congratulations and well wishes. To this day, I am not entirely sure how I managed to pull it all off, I know God was with all of us and I am incredibly thankful for this couple and their patience with me. Thank you for choosing me to be a part of your day, allowing my daughter to attend her first wedding, and having a fun bridal party!
